Children's Discovery Museum

This past weekend was a full one that included celebrating the 8th birthday of my grand -nephew, a trip to the Napa wine country for an early St. Valentine's day, and learning of the death of my Wife's Grandmother.

Here are a couple of snapshots from the Children's Discovery Museum in San Jose, California. A great place for little kids, where they can run free to play inside of real fire trucks and ambulances, make giant soap bubbles, and generally explore. If Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, this is the noisiest. I swear I've been to Dead concerts that had a lower decibel reading. But the kids had a great time.

Later this week I'll be sharing some pictures from the Napa Valley. We visited the towns of St. Helena and Calistoga, stopped by Niebaum Coppola (where I purchased a Carneros Valley Pinot which will accompany me to LA in March), and had a wonderful lunch at Tra Vigne. The weather was overcast, so the photographic opportunities were limited, but I feel it is worth sharing just to give an idea of the beauty of California's wine country.

And a final personal note. My wife's grandmother was 95 and a kick in the pants until her last few days. She passed away peacefully on Sunday morning. We'll miss you Mary.
